NEW FOLKS SHOWCASE
The GottaGetGon festival starts Friday evening with a NEW FOLKS SHOWCASE at 8 PM. This year's New Folks are new to us but known elsewhere:
5 MILE STRING BAND - A rockin' old-time string band from Brooklyn NY with an infectious sound and irresistible energy.
MAX HATT / EDDA GLASS - Jazz-Americana duo from New Mexico that is "subtly poignant, elegantly funky, and haunting without trying to be." (Nels Cline, Wilco)
THE YOUNG NOVELISTS - Beautiful harmonies on songs culled from their small-town roots in rural Canada. They are the winners of the 2015 Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist of the Year
The GottaGetGon is a friendly little folk festival
put on by volunteers every Memorial Day Weekend since 1970. It welcomes adults, teens, and children to enjoy a weekend sharing music, time, and friendship.
We hope you can stay for the weekend.
